Honestly... it IS confusing, unless you've been around the block with this technology (and satellites) for a few years. Listen to the questions asked by "newbies". This is definitely not a toaster that you take out of a box, plug in, and use. And it's truly not very user-friendly yet.

We should just flood Newsweek's email with our complaints. Maybe they'll get the hint next time.
Otherwise, most major publication outfits will just do the same thing. Setting my system up was a pain in the ass. Having a defective HD receiver didn't help matters.
The reality of our world is that most ppl are accustomed to buying the TV and then plugging the cable into it. Yes, the guy is an idiot....but sad to say, there are more folks like him than us...let's say 100,000 to 1?

The truth is that for most people this is a much lower priority. Those are the people to whom this article was addressed.
